When you have root-level access to a hosting server, it means that you will have full control of it. That is to say, you can set up any server-side application regardless of the changes that it will make to the software setting on your server, and you will be able to both access and customize any kind of file, including system files, and change any settings. You can do this by connecting to the server as a root user that has full privileges to perform the aforementioned things and also to make other users, which includes users who also have full privileges. This connection can be established with a web-based graphical interface or a Secure Shell console. For security reasons, it's recommended that you make a different user for your daily work and use the root user only when you have to modify the server or to install software that may be required by some script-driven application that you want to run.

Full Root-level Access in VPS Web Hosting

Our Linux VPS web hosting feature different levels of access, so as to give you the option to pick the one you need, based on your level of experience and on what you want the server for. When you acquire a VPS devoid of Control Panel, you'll have full root-level access and you will manage everything through a console, unless you install some third-party software tool. The servers that are ordered with the DirectAdmin or the cPanel website hosting Control Panel also feature full root access, yet most of the things that are related to your world-wide web content can be performed via a graphical interface and not a console. You'll be able to install many different frameworks or media streaming software, for example, without a problem. When you get the virtual server with the Hepsia Control Panel, you can still use a Secure Shell console to connect, but the root access will be limited. Yet, the Hepsia-equipped servers are the easiest to take care of.

Full Root-level Access in Dedicated Servers Hosting

Each dedicated server that we offer gives you full root-level access, if the server is ordered without a Control Panel, or with cPanel or DirectAdmin. If you wish to set up and run heavy, resource-demanding apps and they have specific requirements regarding the server software environment which can't be fulfilled by a regular shared hosting plan, our servers are the perfect solution. With no Control Panel at hand, you're able to access the server and customize its settings and the content that you upload through a console, while with cPanel and DirectAdmin, you will have a graphical interface to control everything related to your web content, and also most server-side settings. Of course, when you get a dedicated server with no Control Panel, you can install some third-party software instrument manually, as long as it is compatible with the OS that you have selected at signup. When you choose the Hepsia Control Panel from the order page, you will have limited root access, however you will still be able to do a lot of things using a Secure Shell console.
